TOP 5 ISSUES FACING WOMEN IN BUSINESS
Study by: Thomsen Reuters
TOP 5 CAREER CONCERNS FOR WOMEN
There are plenty of statistics tracking the percentage of women in the workforce, their qualifications and their salaries. But the data doesn’t show us the whole picture. It doesn’t assess how women feel, how they fare in their day-to-day business, the challenges they encounter. And that is why the Thomson Reuters Foundation, with support from the Rockefeller Foundation, embarked on a global task, asking more than 9,500 women across the G20 to identify the top five issues faced at work.
The findings are compelling; according to the research, the issues that concern women the most are:
- Work-life balance
- Equal pay
- Career opportunities
- Children and career
The global report reveals that four in every 10 women see the gender pay gap as a key issue, with women in seven nations listing this discrepancy as their major concern.
Let’s work to shift paradigms and eliminate generational patterns for all women!
